Love the Champion, I've had a similar idea swimming around in my head since seeing that MK 2 command kit and you've created it perfectly. I might be borrowing that one for myself!

Is the terminator made from Calas Typhon?

The terminator is inded made from the calas typhon model. I felt guilty at butchering such a bueatifull and expensive model.

Thanks for the kind words.

Oddly enough, one of the highlights of the model for me was the amazingly sculpted base that comes with it.

Don't feel guilty, you've done an excellent job with it!

UPDATE SHERIDAN 

Just a small update, started on the base (first time using the new technical paints) added some brass on the back of the model to break up all the steel parts and added a few more (thinned) coats of wolf grey to the white parts:

All c+c is appreciated and needed, as it helps me to improve.

Mix some light blue or light grey in with your white, man. Just enough for the shade to become an off-white. It makes the white a bit smoother, and you will be able to use pure white as a highlight color.

 

Water down you black wash as well, and only wash it into crevices and recesses, not the whole section of white.

 

Keep on keeping on, brother. Looking good so far.

How would you recommened going around building squads of:

1, shadow wardens
2, shadow masters
3, dark fury assault marines.

All of them are new units from book lll.

You could wait for Forge World to make the units, but if you're really ancy, there's a lot to work with through bits from the new(ish) Vanguard kit to the FW recon set.

Very well done, friend.


Trial Of Blood Part I & IIPrelude To ArmageddonBlack blood vomited through corrupted lips as he struggled to speak his last. "I-iron within, iron wi.." His legion's motto was cut short as Soghur ended his life with a final swing of his axe. "You know nothing of iron, traitor," spat the Iron Hand as he strode over his already forgotten enemy.<p>"I understand you might think the IX Legion a bit... overzealous with our devotion to blood. But you must understand, blood is the most valuable resource on Baal. The tribeless are left to die. Lord Sanguinius was the only surviving orphan anyone could remember who actually thrived before he was found. So you see, his blood is singular in the history of our world, and we are honored to share it with him." - Ninth Captain Demion

YAY RECON MARINES 

 

I bought and built a squad of recon marines with a RG upgrade pack. It is a lovely kit to work with. My only problem now is how to paint them.

All suggestions on how to paint them?paint schemes is very welcome.

Extermination depicts all markings, including the Raven Guard legion badge, to be of an absolute black on the recon marine, barely contrasting with the 'flat, ash-grey finish in its passive state' of his armor with the cameoline field disengaged.

 

Good-looking models.

My only problem with an all black model, is that it is boring to paint and look at.

I agree, which is why I like looking at World Eaters more than at Raven Guard.

Paint the demi-cloak in the same color as the base, maybe? Dark red cloth if you're using red sang, etc. Sprinkle different hues for flavor and camouflage effect.
